The British Tamils Forum marked Maaveerar Naal, and called for full implementation of the UNHRC resolution on accountability and reconciliation.
In a statement released Friday, the organisation condemned the ongoing “military occupation” of the Tamil North-East.
Marking the “immense sacrifices made by the fallen heroes and the sacrifices made by the ordinary Tamil civilians,” the organisation pledged to “continue their struggle, keeping in mind the political aims of those who sacrificed” adding,
“We call upon Tamil political parties in Sri Lanka to unite and follow the lead of the Tamil people to face the oppressor courageously and provide leadership for a mass political struggle to force the Sri Lankan government to implement fully the international recognised and accepted resolution on Sri Lanka.”
